Like HQ Trivia, Hangtime for iPhone is a live trivia game show, but with more game types, at 2 pm and 6 pm ET, daily and 10:30 pm on weekends. Be among the winners and win or share $150.
Multiple game types: HQ Trivia offers one live trivia game show type, but on Hangtime for iPhone, you can also play Pop Quiz, a quirky trivia show at 2 pm ET, hosted by animated character Rose and with a pre/post game with animated character Steeve; The Good Game Show, a variety show at 6 pm ET, hosted by Hangtime staffer and comedian Jon Hudson with a pre/post show with animated character DJ Chuck; and Perfectly Adequate Games, a half- sitcom/half-pop culture quiz, hosted by local stand up comedians Will and Erinn at 10:30 pm, Saturday and Sunday. There's also a weekly Mystery Box, a themed pop-up quiz game around a single user-generated topic, such as professional wrestling, at random times.
Live animated pre- and post-shows: HQ Trivia tides you over till the show starts with dull visuals and music. But Hangtime offers warm-ups with special guests, including our favorite, DJ Chuck, who amps players up with music and by taking questions in the Global Hang. The bartender Steeve chats with players, too, who post questions or comments in the Global Hang.
Non-elimination game: Unlike HQ Trivia, Hangtime is a non-elimination game, which means that even if you get an answer wrong, you can keep playing until the end and even conceivably be among the winners, if you get the highest number of answers correct.
Private Hang: You can play with everyone in the Global Hang or go into a Private Hang alone or with friends or strangers who you can join. When you invite friends or other users, you also increase your chances of winning by playing together.
Earn freebies: Earn an automatic freebie by joining Hangtime or inviting friends to download the app with your unique code that you send them.
Safe environment: Each show has a Hangtime facilitator in chat, typically HangtimeJill or HangtimeMax, to ensure a friendly and respectful experience for all. The community also self-moderates. So spammers and haters are quickly dealt with.
Not a big-money game: Unlike HQ Trivia, which has provided $1,000 to $250,000 in prize money to winners, the newer Hangtime offering just $150 to winners. Hangtime tries to sweeten the pot by occasionally sending swag packs to loyal and active community members.
If you're getting bored with HQ Trivia, Hangtime for iPhone offers a new, fun, and more varied live trivia game experience with several game types. Because the game is non-elimination, players also have more opportunities to win.
